Last week, the White House released its Science and Engineering Indicators 2010 report. The report is produced every two years. According to the report, the state of U.S. science and engineering is still strong, but our nation’s global primacy in science and engineering has dropped significantly in the past few years. The result has something to do with the increasing capabilities among East Asian nations, especially China.
The report also reflects on elementary and secondary science and math education, the science and engineering labor force. The public attitudes and understanding about science and technology were also showed in the report.
